National GME Census
The American Medical Association (AMA) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) jointly conduct the National GME Census. The primary data collection mechanism for the census is through the AAMC's GME Track, a secure web-based application that, among other services, includes the Program Survey and Resident Survey modules. The information on FREIDA Online®, the AMA Residency & Fellowship Database™ comes primarily from the Program Survey.
In May 2015, GME program directors and institutional sponsors received an email with details and dates of the National GME Census. The Program Survey portion became available for update on May 20, 2015. Programs that complete and approve their Program Survey on or before July 10 will have their program information uploaded to FREIDA Online in August. A second FREIDA Online update will occur in October for those that complete their survey by September 30. A final upload for the 2016 version of FREIDA Online will take place in February 2016. Programs can make edits to their program information throughout the year by contacting FREIDA Online.
